WASHINGTON – Working to protect the District’s public housing, Ward 1 D.C. Councilmember Brianne K. Nadeau introduced a bill today that would move the D.C. Housing Authority from an independent agency to an agency under Mayoral control.
WASHINGTON – Nearly one in five District taxpayers could get a larger tax refund under a bill re-introduced today by Ward 1 D.C. Councilmember Brianne K. Nadeau. The Rainy Day Refund Act gives low income taxpayers who use the Earned Income Tax Credit a 50 percent “savings match” if they opt to save a portion of their refund for a “rainy day” by deferring part of their refund for six months. Deferring and increasing the refund amount is an evidence-based approach that lifts more taxpayers out of poverty by encouraging savings and helping families weather unpredictable fluctuations in income.
Today, surrounded by my friends, family, and my Ward 1 team, I was honored to be sworn in for my second term as your Ward 1 Councilmember. In my speech, I vowed to continue fighting for affordable housing and to ensure ALL residents share in the District’s prosperity. It is an honor to continue serving you.
